Make America World Cup hosts again- Trump warns rivals over 2026 bid

Just a month away before the huge announcement of the 2026 FIFA World Cup hosts, President Trump has warned to withdraw support on countries that do not support the joint hosting bid of the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

¨The U.S. has put together a STRONG bid w/ Canada & Mexico for the 2026 World Cup, ¨ says Trump's tweet.

The US, Canada and Mexico bid group said in a diplomatic statement: "From the beginning, we have received great support from the Canadian, Mexican and United States governments".

It is strongly against Federation Internationale de Football Association rules for governments to interfere in the host selection process, so Trump's comments could have the potential to hinder the United States' bid.

Amber Rudd grilled by MPs over Windrush scandal
Asked if she had told May to ditch the target, Rudd said: "I have not discussed that with the prime minister". The Home Office has launched a major review to check whether anyone has been incorrectly deported.

FIFA, in turn, cited its guidelines not allowing political influence in the bidding process.

The African country Morocco is also bidding to host the 2026 event.

Trump's comments came in the context of highlighting American assistance to Nigeria and follow a veiled threat to withhold U.S. Support from countries opposing the North American effort. Why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us (including at the United Nations)?¨.

Trump is convinced that the USA can get away with coercion and corruption, in terms of commercial and strategic benefits, that would have crushed the chances of any other bidding country.

The Cardinals pick... the Rosen one!
Rosen, who threw 59 touchdowns and 26 interceptions during his three seasons at UCLA, has a history of not being shy in the media. And while Bradford is unlikely to lead the Cardinals to a Super Bowl, there are worse places for Rosen to be than the Cardinals.

"As a general rule, we can not comment on specific statements in connection with the bidding process", FIFA's statement said.

The 2026 World Cup bid will be awarded this summer.

The North African country with long coastlines along the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea previously bid for the World Cup in 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010. All 206 votes from member nations will be made public.

Trump did not specify which countries he was referring to, but it is widely expected that Morocco will have the support of virtually the entire African continent and a great bloc of Middle Eastern countries.

Season Two Of 13 Reasons Why Is Out This Month
They're using a recently released trailer and teaser clip as their guide to understanding some of what this season could be about. The video shows several cast members along with photos that reveal a darker side to their personality.

The United States previously hosted the World Cup in 1994, and that 24-team, 52-match tournament still holds the all-time attendance record (with almost 3.6m spectators), despite a subsequent expansion of the format to 32 teams and 64 matches. "We didn't discuss it, because the president knows me, and he knows where I'm coming from and I appreciate that".
